Information for authors and reviewers

The journal Sovremennye problemy distantsionnogo zondirovaniya Zemli iz kosmosa (Sovr. Probl. DZZ Kosm.) organizes uploading and reviewing of manuscripts via  User Accounts.

Only manuscripts prepared according to the manuscript preparation rules (in Russian) can be considered for reviewing and publication in Sovr. Probl. DZZ Kosm.

Peer-reviewing is obligatory for all manuscripts received. The reviewers are members of the Editorial Board or external experts recommended by the members. As a rule, one reviewer per manuscript is assigned, however, uncertain cases may demand inviting more reviewers.
